The 'Celebrity Big Brother' star - who has 15-month-old son Caben-Albi with his former partner Stephanie Davis - is reportedly desperate to sign up to the dating show and do more reality television.

A source said: "Jeremy's now hoping to go away and then come back and do more reality TV like 'Celebs Go Dating'. He thinks by going away and hiding he can come back an go on 'Celebs Go Dating', 'Ex On The Beach' and other reality shows and everyone will love him."

And the 28-year-old model's pal thinks he has just got a little "lost" along the way.

The insider told The Sun Online: "He's so self-obsessed that we would be out and he would think everyone was looking at him an taking pictures, he thinks he's a big deal. He wants to be known as a lad because he's so famous he can do what he wants. I just feel just like he's a lost little boy being led by the wrong pack."

Meanwhile, Jeremy - who spent five weeks in prison for assaulting his former girlfriend - previously admitted his career is "over".

Asked how to be a good role model, he said: "I think the best way to do it is get out of this game. I know my career is over on TV. No one is going to touch me with a 10ft barge pole. My name is tarnished and I accept that ... I loved 'Big Brother', I met some fantastic people, it was my problem, 'Big Brother' didn't change me, I got cocky, money was coming in."
